Opera's Internet Browser Surfs into Multiple Motorola PCS Handsets

2/12/2004 - Opera Software and Motorola’s Personal Communications Sector (PCS) announced that they have signed a licensing agreement to deliver Opera's Internet browser on multiple Motorola PCS handsets. The agreement also provides Motorola PCS with a licensing power for the Opera Platform, a full integration solution between handheld devices' local applications and operator's online content. This announcement complements last week’s Opera and Motorola Global Software Group joint product and distribution agreement announcement.

"We find Opera to be a great option for Web browsing solutions for mobile handsets," said Ruchi Mangalik, director of software portfolio, Motorola PCS. "With Opera's multi-platform capabilities we're able to support delivery to our customers of a seamless experience across various handsets."

"We are very pleased to be included in the evolving strategy for Motorola handsets," says Lars Boilesen, Executive Vice President Sales and Distribution, Opera Software.

Additionally, Motorola PCS can now make the Opera Platform available to its customers. The Opera Platform allows operators to integrate tailored content directly with the main screen of a customer's handsets. All content can be easily made to be dynamically updated over the air at any time, thus strengthening operator brand development and customer loyalty.
